That's really pretty Steve!  Nice playing and nice composition.


One question: why do you have your dulcimer on that mat?  I assume the Thomas repro has little feet on the bottom. If you put it directly on the desk, the top of the desk would be a de facto possom board, amplifying the sound significantly.

Thanks Robin

i hadn't set out for a Caribbean sound. In fact I was just at a loose end and was going to play another tune and found myself going off on a tangent

Yes I am playing with a felt pick

Thanks for listening

The tune does have a nice Caribbean feel-- I enjoy it!

 John Knopf's build has a sweet sound.  You are using a felt pick on it, Steve?

Thanks very much. I wouldn't mind a little Caribbean weather right now. Mind you there's probably a hurricane blowing right now

John Knopft made this beautiful instrument for me

This makes me think of the caribbean somehow.  Nice strum-rhythm work Steve.

Who made the sweet sounding dulcimer?
